The Story

After a month battling the effects of a stroke from surgery, Iza died peacefully at home surrounded by family and friends on Feb 24, 2016.

Iza was born in Puerto Rico on Sept 30, 1956. She met the love of her life, Carmen Cruz, in 1980. In 1982, they left Puerto Rico and settled in Austin, TX. They both began working at AMD in 1983. On July 4, 2015 Iza and Carmen were married.

Iza enjoyed traveling, going on cruises, trips to the casino, going out to eat, fishing, kayaking, music - especially karaoke, parties, and everything Disney.

I so miss that voice calling out to me when I leave the fab...."loca!"... Iza, thanks for sharing your love of reading with me. There will be one less participant in the Austin cancer walk. May angels guide you home! Carmen, you two showed everyone what love is!

May care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace to get you through the days ahead. I still remember her kind words when I first started in CFM like it was yesterday. She will be missed greatly, my deepest condolences.

Carmen, I don't even know what to say. I am so sorry for your loss. You and Iza were the people who made me feel welcome when I came back to AMD C-shift. Iza and I clicked right away. Working with her made my day go by with lots of gabbing & laughter. I'm so glad we got together that afternoon at Mandolas to catch up. You two are an inspiration of what a loving marrage is all about. Please let us know if there is anything we can do. Iza my friend, I will miss you. Rest in peace.
